The Man more generous than Hatim Tai – Story from Saadi’s Gulistan
Incidentally he had to travel for some work the same day and saw an old woodcutter in his way.
“Have you not heard that Hatim had a feast for all today? “, Hatim asked.
“Indeed”, he replied. “But when God has given me hands to feed my mouth, why should I ask Hatim for a favour. ”
“Justice is that person is more generous than I am.”, exclaimed Hatim.
